TECNO Ghana has unveiled the Phantom X, its first high-end smartphone with a 50-megapixel primary camera and a 48-megapixel selfie camera, as the latest gadget in its Phantom line.

In this attitude, we intend to continue to break new ground in product and design innovation, as we have done with PHANTOM X.”
The Phantom X, like the Phantom 9, sports an in-display fingerprint scanner as well as rapid face unlock for bio-authentication and is powered by a new 12nm MediaTek Helio G95 processor with Mali G76 GPU.
The Phantom X has 8GB of RAM and 256GB of internal storage, and it runs on HiOS, which is based on Android 11.
The smartphone is also equipped with a 4700mAh battery that supports 33W rapid charging, as well as Wi-Fi, 4G LTE, GPS, FM Radio, and Bluetooth connectivity. Van Gogh’s Starry Night and Monet’s Summer are the two creative colors available.
